First World Afro Day lesson launches in schools
Reuters joined one of the first World Afro Day lessons launched in UK schools and interviewed founder Michelle De Leon discussing how the lessons aim to change the way children view themselves and others.

Michelle highlighted ‘There’s bias in society, it affects black and mixed Race children at the very earliest age. They look in the mirror and they don’t like their image and they wanna change their hairstyles. It affects their job prospects, their opportunities, what they want to do in life. They actually decide, maybe I will have to change my hair if I want to do that, and it’s about creating equality in society.’
